Jun Fights Vega In New Street Fighter X Tekken Homage

Diminutive woman throws down with clawed sociopath!

Remember last week's Street Fighter X Tekken promo clip from the wonderful people of Thousand Pounds Action Company? Apparently it started a trend, as a fellow calling himself "Mike Diva" has released his own live-action Namco Bandai/Capcom mashup video.

That's the aforementioned video embedded at top-right, and as you've probably already grasped, it focuses on a fight between Street Fighter's narcissist psychopath Vega and Tekken's long-absent maternal figure Jun Kazama. In comparison to the Thousand Pounds video, it's a bit more reliant on special effects, but as a result, it's also a bit more akin to the game it seeks to homage.

Also of note is how spot-on the actor playing Vega looks. I mean seriously, dude is a dead ringer, despite the fact that the character he's portraying is a completely fictional, slightly racist Japanese interpretation of what a nutso Spanish matador might look like.

By comparison, Jun is also very solid, but given that the character's design is so bland to begin with, that's not exactly a huge accomplishment.

So, having watched this video, what say you of Mr. Diva's efforts? We can't very well just let it co-exist peacefully with the work of Thousand Pounds Action Company, can we? I think it's fairly apropos that we make the two things metaphorically fight to the death for our collective affection.

Now is the time to take sides.

Well, it had Dubstep, so it's instantly shit.
Bravo to the creator for ruining something that could be good!

Let's be honest. Spittin' Narcissism and the Slam Jam could be combined and played in the background, and this video would still suck.

Well yeah, But the Dubstep just confirmed the bad.

Ryu kindly dump the soundtrack? This is not Modern Warfare 3, This game diserves a substantial music. I did like the impact effects though.

You might just call it a Divalution of the genre

Meh. I liked the actors but that's about it. The fight choreography was poor and the moves used had almost nothing to do with the moves the characters use in their native games. And that Mortal Kombat looking bit in the middle was absolutely horrible (not to mention they used a Chun Li voice clip for Jun's voice in that segment as opposed to a Jun clip). Not impressed at all.
